Release Notes

February Release: Development types, consent authority required documents, UI uplift and more.

24 January 2023

Development Applications

Following feedback from our stakeholders, the 3 February release is now scheduled for 10 February, and will include:

  • A new look and feel for the Portal, in line with Digital NSW’s digital design guidelines, a mandatory government-wide style guide to enhance the overall user experience.
  • Enhancements in response to stakeholder feedback.
  • Integration with the automatic mutual recognition (AMR) to eConstruction, making it easier for registered workers to work interstate.
Development types and consent authority required documents

We have received feedback from councils requesting additional time to manage the implementation of changes to development types and consent authority required documents. As such, these enhancements will be released on a future date. This will enable stakeholders time to experience these features in a pre-production environment, e.g. “sandbox”. More information about accessing these features will be provided in coming weeks.

UAT environment

The code for development type and consent authority required documents changes that was in the Portal’s User Acceptance Testing (UAT) environment until 19 January has been reverted to allow for the enhancements that will be released on 10 February. We will inform you when the UAT environment will be available with these enhancements.

Release summaries will be provided on the news and announcements section of the Portal as these enhancements are released.
